Subject: The art of criticism: Judgement in crisis?
I give this talk five stars. Even though I don't constantly choose to give the most in depth reviews on this site or consider myself to be quite the great writer the discussion here had me thinking about some of the reviews I've previously written and what it takes to write a good review.
